  1. Unable to enter restrictions/Other misc. - Manual Flight, Autoflight and Flight Management - AEROSOFT COMMUNITY SERVICES @Hans Hartmannappears to have answered your question and it looks like F200AF220B might provide what you need, as long as the MSFS CRJ follows the functionality of the previous versions.
  2. There have been two reports from people who didn't know about this, just in the last couple of days, and as I generally leave my fuel mixture lever at full rich, i wasn't aware that it affects all aircraft. I was just trying to ensure that people are aware of what might be causing their engines to inexplicably cut out.
  3. If you have a control mapped to fuel mixture and have it set to full lean, your CRJ engines might cut out. Controls don't appear to be synchronised at start-up, but if you press ESC and then resume, the virtual controls are aligned with your physical controls. Recommend that you either remove the fuel mixture mapping or make sure that it is always set to full rich when flying the CRJ.
  4. I've just got round to checking this myself and it is indeed the fuel mixture lever that kills the engine, when moved to full lean. Therefore, if you had it set there, whether the CRJ should use it or not, it will kill the engines.
  5. Ah, I've just checked and moving the mixture lever back to full lean does kill the engines in the CRJ, despite the fact that the CRJ doesn't have a manual fuel mixture control. You might want to either unmap that axis or, as I tend to do now, just push the mixture lever forward to full rich.
  6. I'm loving it but trying to figure out why the 700 takes off so enthusiastically, yet the 550 needs a fair bit of encouragement. I've set the weights in the same way and set the take-off trim, but for me, the 550 really does need to be "dragged" into the air. I'm probably just doing it wrong.
  7. Pressing ESC and then resuming will synchronise the virtual controls in the cockpit with the position of your physical controls, so if you have anything mapped, deliberately or not, to a switch that is set to a position that would stop your engines, this is what would happen. I'd check all bindings, using the 'Assigned' category, to see if you have any potential candidates. The fuel mixture axis had this effect on other aircraft, whether they had a visible fuel mixture control or not, but I am fairly sure that will not be the case with the CRJ.
  8. maybe, hopefully temporarily, try another button/key, to see if you can get the primary control selected.
  9. It does vary a little, but it does stop working after a point. Maybe I'm just having to move in a lot more, as I have yet to get a G2. That probably won't be a problem for me for long though.
  10. Exactly what is it or isn't it doing? If you've mapped a button/key to the 'cockpit interaction - primary control' command, then you need to press that key after you have hovered over the Altitude knob, for this example, and seen the curved arrow. The mouse pointer should disappear and you should then be able to use the buttons/keys that you had mapped, to increase or decrease the altitude. The only other things, i can think of, that might stop it working are:- 1. If you press the right mouse(zoom) button after selecting the primary control, that will be deselected 2. If you move your head too much away from the point that it was when you selected the primary control, the value won't change when you use the inc/dec commands.
  11. I use a combination of the HUD, which makes the selected altitude easier to read, along with the MSFS Cockpit Interaction commands, that effectively let you hold on to the alt sel knob and adjust it, without having to be looking at it. Maybe check out "Sticky" controls - Virtual Reality (VR) / Cockpit Interaction - Microsoft Flight Simulator Forums
  12. I'd check your control mappings in MSFS, to see if anything that might result in the engine(s) shutting down, is somehow mapped to a switch on one of your controllers. If that switch is set in the cut-off position, the alt-tabbing might cause the first synchronisation of the virtual cockpit with your physical controls and result in the engines being cut. I had this happen to me, a few weeks ago, with the fuel mixture axis, that wasn't even supposed to be used in the aircraft i was flying. I'd left the lever in the full lean position and the aircraft was fine until an ESC then resume cycle, caused the engine to cut out. I don't think the CRJ has this particular, fuel mixture axis issue, by the way, but there may be other valid controls that you have mapped.
  13. Oh, you'll have to forgive me for not knowing that, given this is the first time you have posted in this thread. If it's a bug then fair enough, but the behaviour described by the OP, of whom i asked the question, is the sort of behaviour that yaw dampers are designed to prevent, so it was a question worth asking.
  14. I hate to ask, but had you turned the Yaw Dampers on?
